    I'm just developing an interest in the OBW, but I think this fabric would be great! Are you planning on using it?

    I know it has to have the right number of "repeats", etc. so you would just need to check that but the fabric is BEAUTIFUL!!

    I agree with amma that if it is a largeish print it should work really well. BTW when I order fabric online for OBW, I find various sites are pretty good at answering an email asking how long the LOF repeat is... for future ref. But 5 yards should be plenty, my guess is that it's a 12" or 16"...

    Hi Japonica. It stands for One Block Wonder and is one of the techniques to make a kaleidoscope quilt. Have a look here at the Topic List, half way down is the heading One Block Wonder etc... and you'll find an explanation of the terms and information on the books available and so on. Click on the topic title and it will take you to a list of Picture topics where members have posted their finished tops and quilts. http://www.quiltingboard.com/virtual_section_list.jsp

    Ooh, I have some of the same fabric and hadn't figured out what to do with it. OBW sounds great! I found this fabric at my LQS on the sale table and just couldn't pass it up because I love all the bright colors.

    I bought the book but haven't tried a OBW yet, so I think I'll hang back and see how your blocks look before I commit. :-) But I bet they're beautiful.
